The Intelligent Transportation Systems Institute and the Center for Transportation Studies at the University of Minnesota are partnering with Howard University and the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) to offer an eight-week paid summer internship program with MnDOT in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan region from June 11 through August 3, 2012. The internship will be open to undergraduate students from the University of Minnesota and Howard University. Participants will be part of a small cohort of students that will be involved in the program together.
The program is open to all qualified applicants, but it is designed to provide members of diverse groups with summer opportunities in transportation where these groups have been underrepresented. Undergraduates from all fields of engineering, material science, geography, planning, architecture/landscape architecture, communications, marketing, economics, psychology/human factors, and related fields are invited to apply.
Compensation will be in the range of $12.21-$13.25 per hour and includes room and board provided at the University of Minnesota, a travel allowance, and access to the region's public transportation system operated by Metro Transit.
